You tie and turn some amazing stuff! Truely an inspiration for me on cold gloomy days. I think I'll break out the vise before the bass show up! Keep up the good work.

Thanks! Gloomy days make me restless, but hopefully we won't have to wait much longer.

Those are some really nice looking flies!!!! Are you spinning the marabou using a dubbing loop or by hand?

Hi Stan,

The marabou is palmered by hand on all flies above.

I sometimes use a dubbing loop for stacked marabou wing, like on this one. The twisted loop is pulled over (like on paraloop flies):



The flies are tied on size 2/0 and 3/0 hooks (worms are tied on sz. 2).

Regards,

Vlad

Vlad i love those reverse gurgler looking flies. Are they intended to look
like shrimp or a worm hatch type of critter. Those look great. Can you
post up a recipe or a step by step. Looks like they would be a killer fly to toss
around at the marshes near winthrop.

Vlad- What are you using for the body material on the marabou flies to get the marabou to stand out from the hook shank? I can't tell from the pictures. Ron

I can see them being used during a worm hatch as tied but they could be altered to imitate a shrimp during the hatch. Ron

Crash,

Here's the recipe for Emu Flatwing Worms...

Hook: Gamakatsu SC15 sz 1
Tail: pale pink bucktail (you can add few chatreuse hairs too) and single emu feather tied over, flatwing style
Body: tie a strip of pink foam and advance the thread to the hook eye. Tie one long emu feather and spiral the thread back to the base of the tail. Palmer the emu feather along the shank and tie off over the tail, near the hook bend. Pull the foam back over the palmered emu and tie it off at the same spot.

Clip the foam to create a small "back lip". Clip the hackle underneath to create a "v" notch, so that the fly is flat like a worm, with spread out legs.



The fly in this coloration best represents paler worms found on sandy beaches...for dark estuary worms you can use rusty/burgundy dyed emu feathers. It is a good sight-casting fly in shallow water, since it lands very softly.

Ron, it is just palmered marabou. I usually palmer the first feather by tying it by the butt, to utilize longest barbules in the back and get little extra length. Second and third feathers, and the front collar are tied by the tip...they puff up nicely that way.

Thank you Vlad. I have used polar chenille as a body for some but they don't spread out like yours. Ron
